Stunning chapel conversion offers luxury Salcombe living

Set in an elevated position at the heart of Salcombe, this exquisite luxury home enjoys panoramic waterside views matched by a breathtaking interior.

Converted from a former Baptist chapel in 2000, 2 The Sanctuary is one of three luxurious homes and is just a minute’s walk from Salcombe’s Fore Street.  

Offering more than 2,400sq ft of free flowing light-flooded space, this property makes the most of double height space using stunning structural glass walls teamed with period beams.

The shapes of the original windows have been retained, including a magnificent large circular one, to create a home that is in harmony with its surroundings. 

White-washed throughout its three floors, 2 The Sanctuary is immaculate and modern using high specification fixtures and fittings for ultimate comfort. 

Outside entertaining is accommodated with an elevated sun terrace that offers spectacular views of the Salcombe Estuary, East Portlemouth’s beaches and their stunning rural backdrop.

Marchand Petit Estate Agents Director Harriet Cundy said: “Occasionally an individually designed home comes to the market that has pushed the boundaries of design to provide a beautiful contemporary home which combines cutting edge technology, natural materials and traditional skills to create a distinctive home of character. This is one such property.

“It is centrally located, yet peaceful; it has retained original features yet is thoroughly modern; it is spacious yet extremely inviting and comfortable.”

As well as four generous double bedrooms, 2 the Sanctuary benefits from three en-suite bathrooms, a family shower room, an open-plan living space, a breakfast dining area with a glass roof, and a large kitchen. This property also offers the convenience of a parking space. 

2 The Sanctuary is on the market at a guide price of £1,395,000 through Marchand Petit Estate Agents in the heart of Salcombe. Further details may be obtained by telephoning 01548 844473

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
